Origami creations

Lately the entire family has been into origami all thanks to my aunt’s latest interest. As I’ve always loved origami myself when I was younger, I took up my aunt’s challenge and managed to make these floral creations:

Trip to JB

Recently took a biz trip up to our neighbouring country. Spent most of the time working so not much to elaborate.

I think we don’t always get to see such beautiful landscapes when in Singapore as there are just too many buildings and everyone is always too busy. Maybe I should just head up to Admiralty one fine day and see if I can take a return shot of JB at around the same time…

I even had to resort to playing twice, once in English once in Japanese in order to know what was going on. (This is a costly way to learn though as I pay twice the amount of money.)

I think this is probably my favourite song from the LOVE album currently… the music really resonates with me and I just love the lyrics!
